1800s Cooking Tips and Recipes

Pie Crust Shortened with Beans - Boil white beans until soft, rub through a sieve and mix as much into flour as can be done and preserve sufficient tenacity in the dough. Add a little salt. This crust is used at "water cures," and makes a far better pie crust than one would suppose who had never eaten it.
